GREEK SPINACH: In dried form from 4G
The spinach plant belongs to the order Caryophyllia and the family Chenopodiaceae.
It is cultivated mainly in Europe and North America, while its origin is from Asia.
Annual or biennial plant is cultivated for its thick triangular leaves. The fruit is a very small single-seeded nut that sometimes has a thorny shell. Propagation is by sowing. The cold climate favors the growth of spinach; in Greece it is sown from mid-August to February.
It has a high content of iron, β-carotene, vitamins C, E and K, B vitamins, selenium, zinc, calcium, magnesium, chlorophyll, iodine salts and saponins. It is very good in the proper functioning of the intestine and against anemia. Helps strengthen the immune system and nervous system.
Spinach also has a cardioprotective effect. Due to its antioxidants, it shields the blood vessels, protecting them from cardiovascular diseases and strokes.
Other studies have shown that it reduces the risk of developing cataracts, while due to its high content of vitamin K it has a positive effect on bone density and reduces the risk of fractures.
A cup of boiled spinach meets the daily needs of our body in vitamins A and K. Also, spinach is a rich source of manganese, while providing magnesium and iron (although in its least absorbed form by our body), as well as vitamin C.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF DRIED SPINACH:
Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, riboflavin and vitamin B6, vitamin E, calcium, potassium, fiber, magnesium, folic acid and iron. 100 grams of spinach has only 23 calories. Although it has large amounts of iron, it also contains oxalate which seems to be an inhibitory substance that prevents the body from absorbing iron, so it does not have as beneficial an effect as it could have. Oxalate can also inhibit calcium absorption. Slightly cooked spinach may have lower levels of oxalates resulting in it being more digestible and absorbing its nutrients more fully.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Dried spinach is a good alternative to use in our food. We can have them in our kitchen’s cabinet and use them at any time. It is not necessary to hydrate if we boil them. It finds application in risotto, soups, purees and even in confectionery. It has rich flavor, color, and aroma.
